Searching for a Site for a New Orange County Jail

September 25, 1988

Please! Please! Please! No jails in Santa Ana or any city populated by non-criminal population. Why should these lawbreakers have the luxury of living near their relatives, friends and lawyers.

These lawbreakers should be as far away as possible from the people they love. If they had any concern for themselves or the loved ones they never would have committed the crime, unless of course they are mentally and emotionally deficient.

This country pampers the lawbreakers. They have government-paid lawyers, the judges are lenient and everyone seems to accept crime as just a part of society we have to live with. Well, we don't.

If we had a better "educational" system, we could have saved more than half of these people from lives wasted and lives filled with dependence on others for their needs in life.

All criminals should have a jail far away from populated areas, and they should operate their own jail by farming and doing other work that would support their living needs.
